Pop up greeting cards are not just for kids! Like this one from the very adult series Game of Thrones (perhaps you’ve heard of it?), it’s a Pop-Up Iron Throne Greeting Card. Open up this 5″x7″ card and up pops that iconic throne from the HBO series. The cool thing about this highly detailed unique greeting card is that the recipient (if you don’t keep one for yourself!) can display it on their desk or a shelf or car dashboard or on their own throne, even if it’s a porcelain one.
Now the track record of weddings in Game of Thrones is a little, well, spotty but certainly very memorable. So that makes this card the ideal wedding card as long as you don’t plan on attacking the groom’s side of the family during the reception. Or even if you are planning a bloodbath, the least you can do is give the bride and groom a nice card. Ok maybe it’s better suited as birthday or Christmas card then. No matter, it’s cooler than giving yet another Peanuts card.
Winter is coming, and if you are looking for something to take the chill off, Johnnie Walker has just the thing for you. White Walker is a limited edition Game of Thrones inspired whiskey, packaged in a special bottle that reveals a “Winter Is Here” graphic when you chill it.
White Walker “has notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit and features single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish.” Drink enough and you’ll feel like a White Walker has assaulted you.
Let’s be honest, the video is probably better than the whiskey, but it will still be nice to watch a Game of Thrones marathon while having a drink on your own version of the Iron Throne, which is probably more comfortable. And you can rest easy knowing that George R.R. Martin is getting still more money that he has to count instead of finishing the next book in the series. If we buy enough of this stuff, he will never have reason to finish.
Of all the families in the Game of Thrones realm, the Lannisters are the most screwed up. They have the money, power, and more dysfunction of any three other families combined. One of them broke free of the madness to some extent, and that’s Tyrion – who, like many of you, I’m sure – is my favorite of the clan.
The Imp may be rather small in stature but he’s big in his ability to consume wine and solve problems. After all, he drinks and knows things, that is what he does. Fans of Tyrion Lannister will want to check out this action figure based on his looks in season 7 of the series.
Standing 8-3/4″ tall, Threezero’s 1/6th-scale figure features a fantastic head sculpt of actor Peter Dinklage, and comes with a Hand of the Queen pin and a shiny silver pitcher and goblet for drinking. He also comes with different hands with one that allows him to hold said goblet and another for holding the pitcher.
There’s also a Deluxe Edition which includes a series of bonus accessories – a set of 9 pieces from his war strategy planning map.
Being a high-end collectible, it’s not cheap with the standard version going for $177.99, and the deluxe version going for just $20 more. If you’ve got the gold to spare, you can pre-order now at Entertainment Earth for June 2019 delivery.
People love HBO’s Game of Thrones, so of course the merchandising tie-in volume has been pretty heavy. You can buy GoT-themed Funko Pops, action figures, plushes, and much more. The latest entry vying for you to pay the gold price comes from New York brewery Ommegang who has partnered with HBO Licensing for their newest Game of Thrones-themed beer.
This beer is called “King in the North,” and draws inspiration from Jon Snow. It is the fourth and final beer in the company’s Royal Reserve Collection. It’s aptly named because after you’ve had a few of these, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
It is described as “brewed to sustain a leader through a long, dark night, King in the North is a barrel-aged imperial stout.” Sounds good to me. King in the North will be available at Brewery Ommegang and select retail stores on Black Friday, November 23rd. The beer will be available both on draft and in 750ml bottles for $12.99 each. The beer will also come as part of a gift pack, which includes all four Royal Reserve collection beers and a Game of Thrones glass for $24.99.
The already existing beers include Hand of the Queen, a barleywine; Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, a sour blonde blend; and Mother of Dragons, a smoked porter and kriek blend.
I’m glad that dragons don’t exist; not only because they breathe fire and eat men either. There’s the bit no one thinks about. What if a dragon shat on your car? Bird poo is bad enough, but a giant dragon would certainly crush your ride with its enormous poops. I’m not even sure insurance would cover that.
If you want a giant flying dragon that won’t poo on your car, this is the ticket.
It’s a 10-foot wingspan dragon kite made from ripstop polyester and printed in very bright colors. It has string anchored to legs, chest, and abdomen that ends in a 50-pound test polyester control line. The tips of the wings and tail have purple streamers for stability, and to look cool while flying.
You can fly said dragon to 500-feet high whilst wearing your favorite blond wig. Sadly, you can’t ride it. The 10-foot Dragon Kite will set you back $129.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer, home to all things unnecessary.
It’ll be more than a year before we see the final season of Game of Thrones, so we need some things to keep us occupied in the meantime. I plan on going back and watching every single episode sometime before Season 8, but that’s only going to take up a couple of days on a binge. Perhaps I’ll buy all of these punch-out sigil masks to kill some more time.
Each of these kits lets you make an polygonal mask based on one of the series major house sigils. There’s a dragon for the Targaryens, a direwolf for the Starks, a lion for the Lannisters, and well, the white walkers don’t really have a house or a sigil, but they get a mask anyhow.
You can wear the masks if you so desire, or simply hang them on the included wall mount like a hunting trophy. All four of the masks are available from Firebox, and sell for about $20(USD) each. Now once I finish these, maybe I’ll go read every single page of George R.R. Martin’s books to burn some more time.
It’s not surprising that an epic show such as Game of Thrones has inspired a great amount of artistic material, including some incredibly awesome posters. Here are those we thought were the best:
Game of Thrones Family Tree Poster
The Game of Thrones family tree poster is probably the most useful one to have when you’re trying to remember or figure out who goes with which family.
Game of Thrones Tyrion & Drogon Poster
The Game of Thrones Tyrion & Drogon poster depicts the most popular Lannister meeting a dragon for the first time, making his way towards the queen he now serves.
Game of Thrones Daenerys Mother of Dragons Poster
The Game of Thrones Daenerys mother of dragons poster is a perfect retelling of the closing scene in the first book / season. The moment Daenerys truly became a Targaryen, and not just by name.
Game of Thrones Map Poster
The Game of Thrones map poster shows a detailed version of Westeros, for those who love the geography of their fictional worlds.
Game of Thrones Episodes Animations Poster
The Game of Thrones episodes animations poster is a collection of the cartoons drawn to describe each episode (or a major event in it) through the first 6 seasons, 60 episodes and drawings overall.
Game of Thrones Winterfell Godswood Poster
The Game of Thrones Winterfell Godswood poster depicts one of the most memorable scenes from the first season, back when things were simple for Ned Stark, and before they went awfully wrong ofr him and his family.
Game of Thrones House Sigils Poster
The Game of Thrones house sigils poster includes the Lannisters, Targaryens, Starks, Martells, Greyjoys, Baratheons and Tyrells.
Game of Thrones Hold the Door Hodor Poster
The Game of Thrones hold the door Hodor poster is made for those who want to cry each night before they got to sleep.
Game of Thrones Jon Snow Winter is Here Poster
The Game of Thrones Jon Snow winter is here poster is one of a series of posters promoting the 7th season, and in my opinion, the best looking of them.
Game of Thrones Night’s King Poster
The Game of Thrones Night’s King poster is perfect for those who are looking for an ominous looking decoration in their home.
Game of Thrones Tyrion Quote Poster
The Game of Thrones Tyrion quote poster is ideal for those who believe in what he’s saying, or simply think having this type of wall art will make them look smart.
Game of Thrones Night’s Watch Poster
The Game of Thrones Night’s Watch poster is a terrific ode to poster art of yesteryear, taking an interesting shift from the usual style that depicts the series in various formats.

Jon Snow has had a rough life. First he was a bastard, then his mom hated him, and his ginger hottie got killed, and he died that one time. Now he’s King of the North, but he didn’t ask for that mind you. Just in time for Season 7, we’ve got a new collection of Game of Thrones Pop! figurines, which includes Jon Snow, among others.
In addition to Jon, you can get Cersei with her terrible short hair, Tormund, Tyrion, Bran, and Wun Wun the giant. I like Wun Wun. He stands 6-inches tall and festooned with arrows.
Tyrion is the same size as the other figures which doesn’t really make sense though. Most of the figures cost $9.99 (USD), while $14.99 will get you Wun Wun over on ThinkGeek. I wonder if Funko Tormund has the hots for Brienne.
